Can you please help me.  I need to
restore some thing from tape but have never carried anthing out like
this before.

We are running a server.  This is the backup script

echo `date`: dumping $1...
tar --create --one-file-system --file /dev/nst0 --totals --label
"`date +%Y%m%d%
H%M%S`" --gzip $1
echo `date`: dump of $1 complete.

Which is tarred then gzip is used if I am correct.

Please you tell me the best way to restore files from this backup.
